KERRY HAVE MADE two changes to the team that defeated Dublin ahead of their meeting with Donegal in Fitzgerald Stadium. 

David Clifford, who played in the Sigerson Cup final last Wednesday, is on the bench with Templenoe’s Killian Spillane coming into the side. Clifford’s UL lost out 1-6 to 0-12 versus NUIG in Carlow.

In goals, Shane Ryan replaces Shane Murphy. Diarmuid O’Connor and Jack Barry continue their partnership in midfield while Gavin White misses out as he continues to recover from injury.

Elsewhere, Kieran McGeeney has named his team to take on Monaghan on Saturday night. There is one change from the team that defeated Tyrone in the second round of the league. Paddy Burns comes into the side in place of Greg McCabe.
